Apple Valley,Red Bluff and Porterville will each be picking up 13-15 new drivers. If you have ever wanted to work for Wal-Mart now is the time to apply,this is a big hire and if your looking to get on this may be your best chance in a long time. Applications will be accepted until 9/12 if things go like they went for my class the orientation for new hires will most likely be sometime in November. You will need to take your time and do a good job on your application,be sure you meet the minimum requirements and be honest about everything in your past. Honesty,integrity and safety are the traits that you need to show you have from the minute you start your application. If you are new to the forum you may not be aware of how many people want to work for the private fleet and how many very well qualified applicants you will be up against. For the last recruitment at Apple Valley there were 2400 applications received of which 750 were deemed eligible and moved on to the review process from there they selected 20 applicants to interview and we ended up with six in our class. Everyone in my class had 20+ years of experience,stellar safety records and very stable work historys which is well above the minimum requirements. If you meet the minimum requirements by all means apply because this is a big hire and they may have to consider applicants that in the past would not have made it past the review process. Reading the posts from myself and the others in the forum will be a great help especially if you are lucky enough to get the call to interview. Good luck and if you have questions be sure to ask there are some great people here that would be happy to help.
